I am trying to start a blog/website. I have installed fantastico with my host provider, and written a couple of blogs. When I try to upload photos, about half the time I get the following error message:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7680 bytes) in/home/thth3508/public_html/wp-includes/media.php on line 258
I received the error message with the very first photo I tried to upload, so it cannot be a space issue.
I tried compressing the photo, that worked some of the time.
With one photo, I got it down to 258KB and it still won't load. I also can't tell what size I need to compress it to, to get it to load, and sometimes through trial and error got one to load that doesn't have high enough resolution to maintain the image quality.
I am a complete wordpress beginner, so would really appreciate some help in the most basic laymans terms possible! (eg. I have seen some explanations about changing code in php or something. I would need instructions on how to get to the place I'm meant to alter the code as I do not know my way around cpanel, fantastico or wordpress)
Thanks for your help.
